HBO showed off a new trailer for The Last of Us at the now-concluded CCXP in Brazil. An upcoming film adaptation of the game series from Naughty Dog has gotten another full trailer, including many previously undisclosed scenes.
Thus, we received a new look at the two main characters, the Infected, and scenes taken vividly from the two game installments.
The comparison below best illustrates just how faithfully the series’ creators adhered to the original vision of the game.
In the film we can see a juxtaposition of events from the games and from the series trailer. There’s no shortage of iconic scenes, from both the prologue and the rest of the game, including walking across a footbridge between the roofs of buildings, or dodging the infected in the museum.
The video’s creator also presented a direct comparison of Purchlak from the game and the TV series. In turn, you can see at the very end of the video how the series counterparts compare to the game characters.
This story presented in The Last of Us takes place twenty years after what we knew as modern civilization was destroyed. Joel, a seasoned survivor, is recruited to smuggle a 14-year-old girl, Ellie, out of the oppressive quarantine zone.
And what begins as a small assignment soon becomes a brutal, heart-breaking journey across the United States. A trip in which they can only rely on each other to survive.
Among the cast are: Pedro Pascal (Joel), Bella Ramsey (Ellie), Gabriel Luna (Tommy), Nico Parker (Sarah Miller), Merle Dandridge (Marlena), Anna Torv (Tess), Jeffrey Pierce (Perry), Murray Bartlett (Frank), Nick Offerman (Bill), Storm Reid (Riley), Con O’Neil (Bill), Lamar Johnson (Henry), Keivonn Woodard (Sam), Graham Greene (Marlon), Elaine Miles (Florence) and Ashley Johnson and Troy Baker.
The Last of Us TV series will debut on HBO Max on January 16, 2023. The first season will consist of 9 episodes.
